The manufacturer of TEC brands is inviting ceramic tile/natural stone contractors and installers to attend the company's free, hands-on Contractor Nights training sessions. The sessions are offered regularly at various distributor locations throughout the United States.

"We continue to introduce a number of technological advances in installation and care and maintenance systems for tile and natural stone flooring," said Gregory Schad, technical director for TEC brands. "Our goal is to help contractors and installers understand how to capitalize on the technology so their jobs go smoothly at all times, which ultimately contributes to the success of their businesses."

Contactor Nights are individually tailored to meet the needs of the participants. Each training session includes an overview of the key features and benefits of select TEC products, followed by a hands-on demonstration. The sessions also include a Q&A period to address various topics, including appropriate product application, proper installation and trouble-shooting. The range of TEC products to be covered include: 1Flex crack-isolation mortar, TEC AccuColor grouts and caulks, TEC Epoxy Grout, TEC Tile & Stone Care System, and Double Duty Plus.

The schedule for the training sessions varies depending on demand within each distributor location. The duration for each session is 1-2 hours, depending on the number of participants and products discussed. Food and beverages are often served. Contractors and installers are encouraged to contact their local distributor of TEC products to learn more about Contractor Nights and dates for upcoming training sessions.
